We have been a little remiss (CORRECTION: greatly remiss) about blogging lately - it's been busy around here.
What's been happening?
On one level, not much. Our numbers remain the same, which is a tad frustrating, and we are looking for new ways of reaching out to let people know what we can offer.
On another level, a lot. A child who started out not participating in the Eucharist at all now takes the bread with relish and occasionally drinks from the cup (apple-grape juice). Kids are enthusiastic and ask their moms to bring them (when was the last time you heard that from a Sunday schooler?) We have expressions of interest for some new teachers.
All of this reminds us that this is a marathon, not a sprint. God works in God's own time. In the meantime, we work in our own way, in our own time, just as the children do, because we are all "Children of the Heavenly Father."
